Stackpole's amazing wildlife
Explore Stackpole's wildlife. Look for otters in the lakes, listen to the dawn chorus, watch butterflies and dragonflies. Stackpole is a naturalist's paradise with a world of wildlife for you to enjoy.
A blaze of purple and gold
Walk the coast path in summer and enjoy the purple and gold of Pembrokeshire's coastal heathland. Heather and western gorse provide the backdrop, while chough and raven wheel overhead.
Wooded byways of the Cleddau River
Discover woodlands running down to the water's edge, salt marshes and mudflats, secret creeks and waterways... Lawrenny, Little Milford and West Williamston are great places for birdwatchers.
Chough - Pembrokeshire's iconic bird
About 60 pairs of chough nest around the Pembrokeshire coast. Look (and listen) out for this magnificent bird wherever you go on the Pembrokeshire coast, but especially at Stackpole and St David's. It has bright red legs and bill, bouncy flight, and nests in cliff crevices.
Butterflies and dragonflies
Stackpole and St David's heathland commons are two great places to look for butterflies and dragonflies. Find the rare silver-studded blue butterfly on Stackpole Warren, or the secretive small red damselfly on Dowrog Common.
Horseshoes in the belfry
Stackpole boasts Wales's largest colony of Greater Horseshoe bats. Bats are to be found all over our places and spaces - in old buildings, in trees, in disused mineshafts and in sea caves. Come on an organised bat watch at Stackpole or Colby to discover more.
